Marek Pasieczny & Michal Daniel Bak
Marek Pasieczny & Michal Daniel Bak

Brand new independent recordings of two young Polish guitarists appeared this month with Marek Pasieczny’s music. Michal Daniel Bak “Music Journey”

I think about this album with sentiment. I wrote most compositions several years ago, when I was younger than Michał. So, it somehow resembles a journey “back to the past”, and these juvenile interpretations of Michał are so dear to me. His interpretations are first of all full of expression and strengthened by his virtuosity. The mastery of the instrument and an interest in jazz music resulted in this very choice of repertoire presented on the debut disc. Michał feels confident in clear forms of sonata, variation or partita. The above mentioned interest in jazz proved to be invaluable in impressionistic variations, a jazz sonata or partita with numerous alterations. The performance, bursting with energy, but also showing a deep respect for all the compositions, is the source of joy for every artist! Great job, Michał! Marek Pasieczny

Jakub Kosciuszko “Here Comes The Silent Dusk. Music of Marek Pasieczny” 

“Music is a record of time, and this CD is a perfect example of this. The three compositions recorded on this album represent my works for solo guitar in significant ways. One can divide this repertoire into three phases – early, middle (guitar studies) and the last one – academic (composition studies).  A great respect towards the musical material and intellectually exquisite approach to new music makes Jakub a great partner in a composer-performer relationship. He can be characterized by his extraordinary maturity which reveals itself in treating each composition in a very focused way. Technical control of the instrument is not obscuring the music, on the contrary – it gives it a natural, full rein to deep musical cogitations.  I hope that this debut album (for me ‘retrospective’ and ‘regulative’) will be an important and appreciated step in the guitarists` musical career.

AMERICAN SUITE (sub-title ‘Tribute to Harmony’) click here for the score

I started to composed this piece in 2003 and re-composed it thought 2006I decided to write this piece because of the following innovative techniques (at least relating to classical guitar) such as tapping, hammering and percussive effects (2nd movement) and their infinite scale of colors to outputs on the guitar, to summarize – widely comprehended ‘sonorism’. I also wanted to write something very ‘spatial’ and impressionistic (3rd movement) and very rhythmical, loud virtuosic and fast. This work is sub-titled Tribute to Harmony’. Harmony has been for me the most important element in my work. I consider it an extremely essential factor in the process of composition, influencing greatly the shape of my works especially this one. It is harmony that is responsible for the so-called density of the music – the space and it’s controlling of the other elements, i.e. rhythm, melody, etc is an indescribably interesting phenomenon for me.
This piece was
commissioned with funds made available by the ‘Scottish Arts Council’. cover by Jacek Pasieczny
